It's a jungle out there....the front door that is...The babies are explorers now!


Patch welcomes you to my home....and a final CELEBRATION of Ewok #1 who moves in a couple of hours to a new home...Soon to be at 3 babies......

If he could narrate a story...He'd tell you that the artwork on the walls is a CELEBRATION of Moab where Sean proposed to me and Zion's masterful face. 

 Once a house...Now a home....I had a moment of nostalgia as the kittens explored the front yard for the first time and amazingly I had a moment where it was 6 years ago and I was seeing the house for the first time...

There is something so uplifting for me when creating in my home of warm yellow plastered walls and rich browns of woodwork..Blue doors, they absorb the blue of the world so that we can keep it from seeping into our hearts...  Sadness is a welcomed emotion that allows for bounteous hugs and comfort but the BLUES are not my friend...SO many years the doors did not absorb it and my heart did....And now...A nice little way to enjoy a beautiful color....Yellow of the sunshine with hints of blue sky..fortunately the thunder clouds stay away much longer then they used to....



Their own little jungle, fun to see them meeting the outside world for the first time!  They are not so sure about the rocks under their feet but the leaves are very fun to jump up and snatch....and the favorite discovery...

That MOM'S tail is still the best entertainment!

Kicking off the week CELEBRATING MOM's!!!!

Love, em

PS...Can you tell I took the day off...So nice to have a quiet day of walking Porsche, playing with kittens and looking forward to Sean's arrival home from work travels that have been way too long! 

PSS...I miss you guys when I do not have the time to post.

The art on the walls is very attractive and the blue is perfect! I like the explanation of it as well.

Look at those babies grow! Too fast, I am sure.

We miss you too! Such babies to have around the house. Fancy you taking a mental health day...

And we miss you. I think one of my cats is pregnant. I have never had kittens (as I have rarely had cats). This should be interesting....How long is their gestation period anyway? :-)

I posted photos of ours the other day. They are are on their way out too. If I don't get rid of them soon I'm going to scream. My sewing room has become the kitten room. It stinks, they've managed to get on to the sewing table and the mess is unbelievable. There is cat hair everywhere!

We miss you when you don't blog...but appreciate that sometimes a few days without the net can do you good, you focus on differnebt aspects of your life and come back fresh, with new ideas! Are you keeping any of the babies? Love your meaningful paintings...your home is a real haven...thanks for sharing with us; the next best thing to sharing a coffee in your garden. ( It always makes me smile to hear folks from the US call their magnificent outdoor spaces 'yards'! Here in the UK a 'yard' would be not much more than just that, a tiny brick paved space; though often packed with pots of flowers and climbing plants on the walls!)
